Summer solstice falls on June 21 and, once again, it will be accompanied by the strains of music, resonating through the Lebanese capital.Among the headliners is Khebez Dawle, a Syrian pop band that has been based in Beirut since last year.Anchored by Nader Mansour and Eddy Ghossein, this Lebanese duo will be fresh from their tour of France, the U.S. and Turkey. For their fans, the Bishops are a magnificent blend of U.S. blues music sieved through a rock'n'roll sensibility.Among the performers there will be Sandmoon, a Lebanese indie band with a folk-rock sensibility.The Baths will also feature sets by Afro-Brazilian percussion outfit Segundo Bloco, Lebanese rockers Meen, Exsonvaldes, Semitic Genetic, Elie Ramly and the three-man Safar, whose music seeks to capture the timeless spirit of Indian folk, blended with the flavor of urban pop and rock.SKG will also stage a set with the new-and-improved Guru. Since they acquired a female vocalist, the band has begun to explore new directions and its members promise to share new compositions during the fete. Another, somewhat different, African voice at the Souks will be Moroccan rapper Mustafa, who's expected to deliver a set of politically and socially informed poetic hip hop.
